    Most of the "old fashioned tea cake" recipes in our database say to roll out the dough and then cut it out with a 3 inch round cutter, I see no reason why the dough couldn't be 'patted into shape' if that is your preferred method. icon_smile.gif

    Hi Dee, Yes, I read all of them but I thought there might be one from an old family recipe someone had that was a bit different as to ingredients and method. I've never made them before but a friend of mine was asking me if I had one. Thanks for the response and have a great week-end. DAR

    Hi DAR Lady,
    I just found these interesting and similar recipes, which according with the descriptions written there, are a family tradition recipes and perhaps they could be the one that your friend wants.

    The main ingredients in the dough are butter & buttermilk, then shape (or pat out) the dough into a round, cover with plastic wrap and chill several hours or overnight. Roll it out and cut into rounds using a biscuit cutter. You can see the step by step pictures there. Here is for you to check it out:
